Viking has announced a new ship set to debut in AUG 2021.

The 80-guest Viking Saigon, currently under construction, will sail between Kampong Cham, Cambodia and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam on Viking's 15-day Magnificent Mekong cruisetour.

“For many of our guests, Vietnam and Cambodia remain top destinations because of their significance in world history,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking.

“This will be the most modern vessel on the Mekong and will feel like ‘home’ to our loyal Viking guests who are familiar with the comfortable design of our ships.”
